Sato’s CLNX Series: Beyond Speeds & Feeds

Posted July 28, 2016

While many companies focus on criteria such as throughput and print resolution when selecting a thermal printer, factors like how quickly/easily a printer can be integrated, how rapidly media can be loaded, and how easily the printer can be serviced have an even greater impact on operational costs. Even small improvements in operational efficiency can positively affect a facility’s equipment up-time or ontime labeling performance. The SATO CLNX Series industrial thermal printer, available in a 4” (CL4NX) or 6” (CL6NX) model, was engineered with problem solving features in mind.

SATO’s goal was to engineer a thermal printer that is easier to integrate, operate, and maintain. If a printer requires a lot of configuration, jams frequently, produces poor quality labels, or is difficult for operators to quickly change out labels, ribbons, print heads or platen rollers, the downtime can be costly in terms of both productivity and expense.

Honeywell ESD

Posted July 25, 2016

Honeywell Granit 1910i ScannerYou often hear manufacturers reference ESD when discussing scanners.  In fact, on the Honeywell Granit datasheet you’ll see under the “Environmental” section on the back:  ESD.  ±20Kv air discharge, ±8KV contact discharge

What does it mean and why is it important?

  • ESD – electrostatic discharge – is the sudden flow of electricity between two objects resulting from two conditions:
    • Air Discharge.  A high electrostatic field between two objects when they are in close proximity.
    • Contact Discharge.  Direct contact transfer of electricity between two objects at different potentials.  This is similar to the above except you are injecting the shock directly into the computer. A typical example of this would be 20KV Air Discharge into a scanner vehicle mount.  The mount in turn passes an 8KV shock to the scanner.
  • Kv is a kilovolt – or 1,000 Volts. And a volt is…um…a unit of measurement to define voltage.  Think of voltage, using a plumbing analogy, as water pressure.
